It's two systems that's gonna impact millions of people across a majority of the states from the Rockies to the Atlantic coast.. Lots of snow and rain.. Places in between the snow and rain will see mixed precip and ice.. If your in the path of the ice... Good luck to ya

12 to 24 inches of snow on the northern side of these two systems is gonna be common place me thinks..

We're supposed to get two ice storms here. In a row. They're not sure how bad it's going to be yet. It'll cripple us again, no doubt.

I really wish I had my Jeep.

Much like in the Civil War Kentucky will again be a Border State, we will either get blanketed or nothing, depending on the Jet Stream. Right now we have drizzle. It was 52 yesterday, suppose to be 20 Thursday.

Its currently 42 here in SW Missouri, it was 65+ this weekend and on Wednesday we will have a high of 10 and a low of -12, of course that’s changed about three time today so it may be lower… Yesterday the news said we were getting 3-6 inches, today they upped it to 6-12, now I am hearing the national weather service has said 15-20, this should be a good time!!

Well so far, the Great Missouri Blizzard of 2011 is pretty tame:





Got about 5" thus far. Drove through some pretty deep stuff...plows pushed it to the center of two lanes on one road...was up to the bumper. But really, not too terrible right now...other than visibility. Pretty hard to see at times. Will be going back out when it gets deeper...try to get some more pics (love my Nikon)

Well, I let the wife take the jeep to work, so I couldn't get out and play. She likes the remote start. As of about 4:30 pm, looks like we have about 8 inches on the ground, and it's still coming down.

I would LOVE to get some snow... Here in the valley, if we get any, even a light dusting where you can still see the asphalt through the snow, we shut down. I'd love to take Rubi to play in the snow, and even more I'd like to run her through a blizzard, but I fear I may never get to experience that...

Nice! I just got in from a spin around the neighborhood. The plows won't come near my neighborhood for a while if it keeps up like it is.. And i hope they don't! Had a blast. Just couldn't see anything with all the snow blowing around!
